Hong Kong

Hong Kong

Embark: 29 February 2020
Hong Kong may boast some 236 islands but most of the five million inhabitants of this former British Crown Colony are concentrated on just one, Hong Kong Island, and one city, Kowloon, on the facing peninsula. It is known as one of the most crowded and vibrant places in the world, making Hong King cruises a must see. Be energised just walking down its teeming streets where you can buy anything from a handmade suit, fancy jewellery and the latest duty-free electronic gizmos to Asian antiques. Go on a trip between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island with the Star Ferry, giving you the experience of the world's busiest crossings. For one of the steepest journeys, try the tram which travels to the top of Victoria Peak,
Hanoi (Halong Bay)

Hanoi (Halong Bay)

In Port: 2 March 2020
Step back in time in one of the world's most ancient capitals. Savour the 13th-century buildings of the old quarter or see the traditional storytelling art of water puppetry nearby in Hoan Kiem Lake. Just off the coast of Vietnam, a myriad of karstic islands are clustered in this picturesque setting. Looming out of the sea, undercut by erosions into fantastic shapes, they reminded the Vietnamese of the looping back of a swimming dragon. Scattered among them, whole communities of fishing families live most of their lives on sampans, trading among themselves and periodically going into nearby towns such as Haiphong to sell their catch and buy supplies.
Da Nang (Hue)

Da Nang (Hue)

In Port: 4 March 2020
A stretch of coastline quite unlike any other in the South China Sea. Passing coastal sand dunes, beautiful green hills and paddy fields, you sail to the historic Vietnamese cities of Hue and Da Nang. A port call to Chan May offers the chance to experience white sand beaches, historic tombs and one of Vietnam’s most famous waterways: the Perfume River. Whether you choose to travel to Hue or Da Nang you’ll be met with a wealth of sights to see, not to mention scenes of indescribable beauty. Both cities are the gateways to some of Vietnam’s most illustrious treasures; from the Ancient Emperor tombs outside of Hue to the spectacular cave labyrinth of Da Nang’s Marble Mountains. Prepare to find your senses piqued, your soul nourished and your heart captivated by otherworldly sights and spellbinding scenery.

Ho Chi Minh City

Disembark: 7 March 2020
Welcome to Vietnam's culinary centre where there is plenty on the menu. The port of Phu My (pronounced "Foo Me") is the gateway to Ho Chi Minh City and the seaside resort of Vung Tau. Still fondly known as Saigon, the city is a thrilling, chaotic whirl played out against a French colonial backdrop as the aroma of noodle stalls, the sight of orange-garbed monks and the incessant buzz of scooters create a vivid snapshot of daily life.
